2010 Color of the Year

Pantone just announced the 2010 Color of the Year: Turquoise!
This is my favorite color so I couldn't be happier!
I don't know what it is about this color that I love so much. Maybe because it reminds me of the ocean and soothes my soul.
On the Pantone website Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, says “It is believed to be a protective talisman, a color of deep compassion and healing, and a color of faith and truth, inspired by water and sky. Through years of color word-association studies, we also find that Turquoise represents an escape to many – taking them to a tropical paradise that is pleasant and inviting, even if only a fantasy.”

Here are a few of my favorite interiors decorated with the color turquoise:
